Package depending on any one of multiple FLAVORS

documentation is little sparse yet (found only mention in the Porters
handbook, created PR for "end user" doc) and I am unsure, if we can
handle this. Best way I can describe my question is probably via
examples, so consider following:
We have multiple PHP versions in ports (php56, php70, php71, php72)
which may get flavored in future. Now there is also some simple PHP
application, let say php-composer, which would work with any of those
PHP runtimes. Can we handle it in some generic way or should one create
also multiple flavors for given application?
Another example would be some really simple C program, which can have
any C compiler as build time dependency. Here making multiple flavors
doesn't have any sense, but author knows that any compiler will suffice.
This one is more general, because it is not only about flavors, but may
lead to something like from [clang4-5, gcc4-6, intel, whatever we have]
take one, but you got the point.
Same can be asked probably for all interpreted/scripting languages like
Ruby and Python and many simple scripts in ports which doesn't have
other dependencies beside those interpreters. Simple Java applications
may also run with all or most available Java ports etc.
